    • How do I know if I am ready for an extended period (five to 14 days or more) away from home?This is important for both girls and parents to know if you (and your parents) are ready for an extended stay away fromhome. Girls who have developed these traits are most likely ready for camp: Independent: She can choose her own clothes, brush her teeth and take care of chores without a lot of supervision. Confident: She handles new situations without becoming overly anxious. Aware: She has already stayed away from her family and knows she can do it. Social: She has been with other girls her own age while apart from her family. Self-reliant: She knows her own mind and is able to make decisions for herself. ENTHUSIASTIC ABOUT GOING: She really wants to go and looks forward to being out-of-doors.Parents, are you ready? Your daughter will be more comfortable in her experience if she knows you are confident in her ability to succeed whileshe’s away. For many parents, sending a child to camp for the first time is an emotional experience. Before sending yourdaughter to camp, take time to evaluate whether YOU are ready for her to go. 42
